Together with our wide range of products and services – including invaluable industry insights and data – we have the tools and knowledge to help your business flourish.
Our Franchise team will work with you to develop bespoke finance solutions with terms that suit your business plans. For franchisees, we offer term loans tailored to your unique franchise requirements (subject to application, financial circumstances and borrowing history), free banking for 12 months* to help you get your franchise off the ground and a dedicated Business Manager with extensive industry knowledge to help and support you in making a success of your franchise. For franchisors, you’ll have a single point of contact who can offer regional and national support, freeing you up to invest time in growing your business. We can help take the stress out of franchisee recruitment, providing them with the banking facilities they need, while you concentrate on sourcing new clients.
